    Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts.

    It seems okay so far, but a little too arty.

    The Human Predicament - David Benatar. Some well argued arguments regarding 'life's big questions' - Suicide, procreation, meaninglessness, death, ethics etc. On the whole, an informative read.

    I read the demon haunted world years ago and it had a profound effect on my outlook towards science and reality.
    A great book.

    Moondust by Andrew smith about a guy who interviews each of the surviving moon walkers. It was written some time ago so Neil and others now dead are interviewed.

    It's mainly about how they readjust back to normal life having stood on the moon and looked back at the earth. Needless to say not all can.

    Too long! Read less than half then gave up. Interesting, but too much filler for me
